Thugs Of Hindostan took an earth shattering opening today across the country and is the ninth bumper opening in the career of Aamir Khan. There is a different definition of bumper between a Dil (1990) and Thugs Of Hindustan (2018) as the days of 95-100% occupancy are long gone unless restricted release. But today even restricted release fails to get occupancy on day one.



Thugs of Hindustan is the 45th release of Aamir Khan and nine of these films have taken a bumper opening. Rang De Basanti had a healthy number which as a number can be called bumper but the capaity potential had really grown in the six months prior to the release of this film which led to occupancy which was not bumper for Rang De Basanti



Amitabh Bachchan also has a bumper opening to his name after a long time with Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham being the last one in 2001. In total there could be 30 bumper openings for Amitabh Bachchan as in the eighties and early nineties it was bumper for nearly every film be it that film eventually turned out to be a HIT or FLOP.



The nine films of Aamir Khan to take a bumper opening are as follows.



1. Dil (1990)



2. Ishq (1997)



3. Mela (2000)



4. Mangal Pandey (2005)



5. Fanaa (2006)



6. Ghajini (2008) - Holiday



7. 3 idiots (2009) - Holiday



8. Dhoom 3 (2013)



9. Thugs Of Hindustan (2018) - Holiday



There are a few holiday releases with 3 idiots, Ghajini and Thugs Of Hindostan but both Ghajini and Thugs Of Hindostan would probably be bumper even if non holiday. 



UPDATED - It is nine films and not eight as Mangal Pandey did not show up in our internal database due to some error.
